The Reef Centroamérica Surfing Games Costa Rica 2011 began this weekend in Hermosa Beach, one of the most beautiful tourist attractions of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast and one of the favorite destinations included in many of the Costa Rica Travel packages, for its natural beauty and tropical climate.
Hermosa Beach is an ideal place for events like this, thanks to its weather and high waves, necessary for the competition and because it has some of the best and comfortable hotels and resorts in Costa Rica, which makes it one of the favorite places for Costa Rica tourism and big competitions.

Surf is one of the best things to do in Costa Rica for local and foreign tourists who visit the beaches to enjoy the natural beauty and exuberant landscapes offered by the national coasts. That is why the Reef tournament is one of the major attractions in Costa Rica in November. The event meets hundreds of local and foreign fans of surfing.
Each country participates with its best surfers. El Salvador competes with young figures as Israel Arenivar and Juan Carlos Ramos, as well as Jimmy Rotherham, Open silver and bronze medal winner in the two previous Central American tournaments.
